Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
About me: I like coffee, NPR, trying different beers and whiskeys,
cheesy 80's music, and sushi. I also enjoy going to the gym,
playing tennis, and going for bike rides (I have a Trek that's like
my best friend!). There's nothing I enjoy more than losing myself
in a good book or movie, or perhaps researching something on the
internet. Some things that I truly just don't understand are why
people vote republican, become lawyers, go gambling, or why really
short women absolutely insist on being with a tall man (not that
there's anything wrong with these things).
In terms of my match, I don't have a type, but I hope to meet a
genuinely nice person. What impresses me the most is a SMART woman
who is down-to-earth, practical, and who leads a balanced life - I
need to be attracted to more than just appearances! Also, it would
be nice if I could meet someone who is capable of doing more than
just going to bars and baseball games.
As for me, I have a reliable car and a good job with benefits, and
I live on my own. Now that I've finally found my place in life, it
really feels like something is missing. After meeting many women
who really aren't my type, I'd like to meet a woman who is ready to
be in a relationship! I've had my fair share of first dates that
went nowhere, attracting women who I wouldn't touch with a 10-foot
pole, getting weird messages, etc., and I'm a bit sick of it! I
feel like I've missed out on so many things, but I'd rather be with
the one who's right for me than selling out.
I CAN'T SEE "LIKES"! If you're hoping that I will "like" you back,
it'll probably never happen!!! Every day I see plenty of "likes"
and no messages. Come on now, man up and e-mail me! You've e-mailed
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm an investment analyst, covering international equities (...in
institutional investing, not retail investing). I occasionally
hobnob with CEOs, hedge fund managers, high ranking government
officials, and the like. All that highfalutin business doesn't
impress me very much, nor am I a money obsessed psychopath - it's
the little things in life that matter.
In my free time, I'm really into trying different beers and
whiskeys (...but I'm just a social drinker). If the weather is nice
after work then I usually go for a little bike ride or hit the gym.
One of my guilty pleasures is watching House Hunters International.
You can buy a mansion in South America for the cost of a condo, but
risk being kidnapped and ransomed.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Being unnoticed (which doesn't lend itself well to dating!). I'm
like the ketchup bottle that you search for when you open the
fridge, yet it's right in front of you.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I get good comments on my teeth and hair. I have also been accused
of being a "handsome prick"!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I like non-fiction books. Yes, I do read books that aren't
on the list of readings from senior year of high school! But I
liked The Great Gatsby, which led me to reading everything
Movies: Catch Me If You Can, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind,
Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Lost in Translation, Meet the Parents,
anything with Adam Sandler, Her.
Shows: I don't really have any TV shows that I watch regularly, but
I was a huge LOST fan while it was on. Welcome to Sweden is rather
awkward but funny (love it!). I also like Pawn Stars, Flip or Flop,
and House Hunters.
Music: I just listen to whatever is on the radio (which is usually
tuned to NPR), and I love 80's music - with a huge collection to
prove it! I'm a big fan of Sublime, 311, and Red Hot Chili
Food: Chinese Food, sushi, mushroom pizza, Sam Adams beer, dark
chocolate, salsa, Mexican food. I'm turning into a beer snob.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Internet, food, coffee, my comfy bed (I take sleep seriously - 300
thread count sheets, down comforter, plush top bed, etc.),
interesting books, my Chrysler 200 (smoothest thing on wheels!).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How/when/where I will meet the one for me...it could be someone in
line at the supermarket, sitting next to me on a plane, or some
other way. So, I'm romantic, but have yet to meet someone to
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Watching some corny movie on TV while sipping some beer. Basically
I'm trying to relax from a hectic week.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're PETITE, smart, and not terribly out of shape. I know that
sounds a bit picky, but I wished people would understand that I'm
not a very big man! Also, you should have a good mix of book and
street-smarts. Having an active interest in coffee, beer, dark
chocolate, and sushi wouldn't hurt. Please, oh pretty please, don't
be wishy-washy...anything but that, ugh!!!
If I pique your interest, send me an e-mail. I'm sorry that I
probably don't live in the SAME exact city or town as you - it's a
big world! From the way women treat even minor distances, one would
think that people don't drive or take public transportation. Love
is a result of mutual attraction, not distance! I can't imagine
telling someone that I love a woman because she lives nearby. If
you're the kind of person who puts such little effort into dating
that you sit at home and wonder why George Clooney hasn't shown up
yet, I don't want to hear from you (because a relationship takes
I realize my profile is a bit sarcastic. I'm just trying to be
entertaining while I have your attention, especially for the people
who think that being boring is the worst...which isn't true at all!
I've literally been to hell and back and it's not having a sense of
